Bannack plays record release party at Evidence Film Studios on 1/26

Bannack creates folk-driven Americana with a roots-pop slant on their debut full-length, Compendium. Made up of three main songwriters who met at the University of California, the live collective write hearty, open-hearted hymns with a fervor that follows the likes of The Head and the Heart and elder locals Edward Shape & the Magnetic Zeroes. Compendium may sum up their experiences as young collegiates, but their natural compositional skills - they wrote and produced the album themselves - demonstrates a confidence one seldom finds on debut efforts.

Bannack will play a record release party at Evidence Film Studios on 1/26. Compendium is also available tomorrow on all major streaming platforms. Juan Rodríguez

Anna McClellan's "Flailing Orbits" is pessimistic, but in a wonderful way

"My head spins like Earth itself," sings Anna McClellan on her newest single "Flailing Orbits." She shows a wonderful, healthy amount of self-awareness, admitting to deep-rooted pessimism and a complicated, flailing relationship. An almost dreary-sounding vocal performance works surprisingly well in this song, but McClellan confidently admits towards the end of the track: "for the first time in a while / I'm not dying to see your smile." Who needs optimism, anyway? Anna McClellan shows that feeling a little bit of existential dread is just fine, too. -Geena Kloeppel

Sacramento's psych-slackers Honyock join Surfer Blood at the Blue Lamp

Listening to the slippery, psychedelic folk rock of Sacramento’s four-piece Honyock is like looking at an old picture of the city that they hail from. Their Demo E.P., which begins on the explosive track “Heather” (streaming below), is a fully-fleshed ode to folk with stoner-rock sensibilities heavy enough for them to accurately brand themselves as “Peyote-Tonk.” The surreality with which they paint their music - audible in the classic, and surprisingly dynamic, psychedelic guitar distortions - is combined with an unexpected edge that is impossible to get enough of. They recently joined indie veterans Surfer Blood at the Blue Lamp for a show. Keep an eye out for their next live show announcement here at The Deli. - Lilly Milman

Ron Pope returns with "Worktapes" EP this Friday!

Just last year, Ron Pope released his seventh studio album Work to much acclaim, even being named one of "10 New Country Artists You Need To Know" by Rolling Stone Country. Obviously, seven albums in, "new" is a relative term. But the work Pop has put in over the past decade shows time and again. Now this Friday, Pope is releasing a 7-track companion EP titled Worktapes. Lead single "Twin Falls Idaho" shows off Pope's picturesque storytelling and breathy Americana vocal performance over a stripped back piano-led track. Check out the single below and look out for Worktapes this Friday! - Chris Thiessen

New Track: "How Simple" - Hop Along

Philly indie darlings Hop Along just announced that they will be releasing a new album on April 6 via Saddle Creek Records, entitled Bark Your Head Off, Dog. Its lead single, “How Simple,” taps into ongoing progress of personal growth. Continuing the knack to impose heartfelt imagery with universal appeal, the song plants a seed of independence. There’s a catchy through-line as the song advances through waves of polished melody. Hop Along will be performing next in Philly on Saturday, May 19 at Union Transfer.
